Your child’s name can be put onto our Nursery waiting list from the day they are born; however no child can be admitted to school nursery before their third birthday.
If your child is given a place in our school Nursery you are still required to complete an Admissions form from the Local Authority to apply for a place in full time school. Children who are aged 4+ are admitted into the Reception class at the start of September.
Prior to joining the Reception Class, a number of “Meet the Teacher” sessions are arranged for the children attending our Nursery. Visits can also be arranged for those children who do not attend our Nursery.
A meeting is held for all new parents/carers to explain the running of the Reception Class and the school. Parents/carers are given opportunities to meet their child’s teachers and see their classroom. Within this meeting parents/carers are informed about the curriculum, and any other important information that they may need is shared.
In-year transfer requests are applications for school places outside the usual primary school (Reception class) and secondary school (Year 7) admissions processes, which take place from September every year. This includes children moving between schools within Middlesbrough, or children moving into Middlesbrough from another area or another country. If your family has moved into the area, or moved house and the distance to school is too great to travel, then you can request a transfer between schools.
Middlesbrough Council currently coordinates all mid-year transfers for all schools in Middlesbrough. This means that if you want to apply for any mainstream school in Middlesbrough, you must apply to Middlesbrough Council’s School Admissions team.
If you want to discuss or apply for a mid-year transfer, please contact the School Admissions team for an application form.
Please contact the Ethnic Minority Achievement Team if you’re an international new arrival to Middlesbrough, a Traveller, fair or circus family, or a family for whom English is an additional language. The team can provide support like helping you to complete mid-year transfer applications and other school admission forms.
